Erdogan and bin Salman discuss Khashoggi's killing

Evidence Shows Khashoggi Was 'Brutally Murdered,' Turkish President Erdogan Says

The journalist has relatives still living in Saudi Arabia and three children who hold United States citizenship.

According to AFP, the Saudi public prosecutor is now saying that Khashoggi's killing was a premeditated act presumably orchestrated by the 15 members of the Saudi hit squad that met and detained Khashoggi inside the consulate on October 2.

"Saudi Arabia is stuck in a quagmire they can't get out of", Kowsari said, adding that the designation was an attempt to utilize the tactic of attack being the best form of defense.

The incident has severely dented the global reputation of the Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman.

And so Erdogan finally took the stage to finally give "presidential" validation to some of the stories that the Turkish press has clung to in the last two weeks. However the officials said they lacked definite proof.

"He says he is not involved nor is the king", Trump told USA Today in an interview aboard Air Force One Monday en route to a political rally in Texas.

Saudi officials murdered Khashoggi in their Istanbul consulate after plotting his death for days, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday, contradicting Saudi Arabia's explanation that the writer was accidentally killed.

Rays Rocco Baldelli appears headed to Twins as manager
Sources tell Fox 9 the Twins will hire Rocco Baldelli as their new manager on Thursday at a press conference at Target Field. The Twins also considered their own bench coach Derek Shelton and Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde for the position.

A Saudi friend of Khashoggi who was in frequent touch with him before his death told the AP that Salah Khashoggi had been under a travel ban and barred from leaving the kingdom since past year as a result of his father's criticism of the government. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called Khashoggi's killing a "monstrosity" and vowed to halt German arms exports.

Saudi Arabia said it arrested suspects and that several top intelligence officials were fired over the killing, but critics alleged that the punishment was created to absolve Prince Mohammed of any responsibility.

Rather than cancel their participation altogether, some companies sent mid-level executives to keep lines of communication and business open with Saudi Arabia. On October 2, 22 US senators sent a letter to President Donald Trump, formally triggering a provision of the Magnitsky Act, which requires the president to determine "whether a foreign person is responsible for a gross human rights violation".

The Khashoggi case has done a lot of damage to the reputations of the Saudi crown prince and the United States president, while giving Turkey a chance to leverage benefits from both, investigative journalist Martin Jay told RT.

He did, however, note that the so-called "human rights abuses" in Iran is "no excuse for what happened with Saudi Arabia". "He's running things and so if anybody were going to be, it would be him", Trump told the newspaper.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he is working with the Treasury Department on whether to impose sanctions on those found responsible for the journalist's death.

While Saudi Arabia maintains no official diplomatic relations with the Zionist entity, Tel Aviv and Riyadh have been growing closer under Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
